From what we're able to infer, Blass is suggesting that Verizon will make the Galaxy S10 5G available at some level on May 16 - we aren't firm on if that will be for sales or pre-orders, but don't doubt that this will be a major milestone for the device. On Wednesday this week, three of the country's super-fast networks went live and began offering data speeds that run on 5G which allow users to download entire movies in less than a second; how awesome?
Hours later United States giant Verizon began commercial services in Chicago and Minneapolis, after rival AT&T made a 5G-based system available to selected users in parts of 12 cities in December.
Samsung announced its new-generation flagship Galaxy S10 smartphone lineup in an Unpacked event held in San Francisco back in February 2019.
"I watch a lot of videos often, movies and lectures", said buyer Shim Ji-hye, 38.
Additionally, 5G will unite more than 1 million devices per sq km transforming how consumers live, communicate and work by connecting not only smartphones but vehicles, factories, offices and cities as well. Verizon has already launched the 5G Moto Mod for the Moto Z3, which is a new accessory for the 2018 phone that creates a massive handset that can connect to 5G networks - assuming there's enough coverage, of course.
The implications of the new technology have pitted Washington against Beijing - whose firms dominate 5G technology - in an increasingly bitter standoff.
One of the mobile carriers, LG U-plus, has collaborated with Chinese tech giant Huawei in deploying 5G base stations at over 10,000 sites.
